morning. we are looking at the tri- valley getting some rainfall. right now this is live radar and we are seeing rain in san ramon, danville, dublin, pleasanton, livermore, about to head into fremont. also some new showers popping up in the south bay and east bay. all the moisture consolidated around an area of low pressure south and east of san francisco. that's why the city and most of the peninsula have not seen rainfall but the south bay has received rain and another round of rainfall not only heading toward fremont but also milpitas and some heavier showers heading directly towards morgan hill and i'm looking at the radar right now. lightning three miles north and east of morgan hill. so if the kids are outside in morgan hill or gilroy now, get them inside! lightning is close enough to become dangerous. so bring the kids inside south of san jose. new lightning strikes are popping up. as i said, the low pressure area to our south and east, the rainfall is only near the low so not everybody getting the rainfall today. and the slow beginning to pull

6:09 pm
resisting and then breaks free. the man opens then shuts the door as he puts his phone away. she gets up and slowly walks backward. she then drops her backpack and looks for something to use as a weapon. just then, he seems to have a change of heart. he turns and leaves. >> this kind of thing can happen in this neighborhood inside my home, it's very sick. >> someone knows this guy. we need to find him. we need to bring him in. >> reporter: police are posting the neighborhood what warnings and the suspect's photo. they believe he is the same guy who followed a 28-year-old woman into a public restroom inside a supermarket last month and tried to sexually assault her. >> we are getting support from the community. people are getting involved. but here's the bottom line. we haven't identified him and he is not in pocket. >> reporter: until the man is arrested, police will be posting these flyers throughout the neighborhood and shopping centers in the area with the suspect's photo and a description of him. he is described as a white man in his 30s medium height

that happiness. >> reporter: christian hartnett, kpix 5. >> a councilman is asking for a fence line there. we learned 8 criminal cases have been dropped because of an investigation into san francisco police misconduct. that could be just the beginning. this stems from those officers who sent racist and homophobic texts. the district attorney is now reviewing more than 3,000 arrests involving those officers. today he announced three retired judges are joining the probe to determines if the officers' bias led to wrongful convictions. >> the consequences of these officers actions and the resulting review has far reaching implications for basic notions of justice and public safety. >> the cases being reviewed go back 10 years. it could take until the end of the year to complete. we have had reminders the

past few days that the bay area is earthquake country. now a bold new project could help predict when the next "big one" could strike. liz cook has details on tracking tremors. >> reporter: scientists are looking at the relationship between faint tremors and major quakes here in california. this all started after the napa quake last august. seismologists at uc-berkeley noticed a sudden increase of tremors hundreds of miles away along the san andreas fault. it's been thought tremors can lead to major earthquakes. now scientists have installed four high-tech monitors hundreds of feet underground along the fault. they are all in the parkfield area where the tremors occurred after the napa earthquake. the goal is to measure them more precisely using what they call tremor scope. tremors can be big, slow and very faint. and this can make them heart to detect. >> they are much smaller than earthquakes. even the tiny earthquakes that happen all the time even
6:18 pm
smaller than that. and the other interesting thing about tremors is that they appear to be occurring at the boundary between a locked or stuck section of the fault where there are only big earthquakes occasionally. >> parkfield is a notoriously active spot that averages a 6.0 quake about every 20 years. scientists hope by being in this very spot they will get a better understanding of what's going on underground. veronica, back to you. >> thank you. we have breaking news coming out of the east bay tonight. chopper 5 is over oakland where officers are involved in some type of a search. you can see the emergency vehicles down parked there behind an apartment on diamond street at 580 and fruitvale. the officers have their weapons out and taking cover behind the doors of their vehicles there as you can see. this came in as a report of a

snow again. >> all right. >> so cool. >> yeah. >> rain and snow. >> finally. >> so -- so sorry we didn't see it a couple of months ago. >> i know. we have now had more snow in the month of may in parts of the sierra than we did in january. >> what?! what?! that makes no sense whatsoever. >> we'll take it though. we're not complaining. >> glass half full. it's raining outside right now. it's snowing in the sierra. we'll take it anytime of year. didn't happen in january. we can't go back in time. we can get some now and we are. we are getting more now in union city. and fremont. and pleasanton. and hayward. good evening to you. it is raining outside. helping out allergies, as well. no additional lightning strikes in the morgan hill area south to rucker and gilroy but still some heavy rainfall now moving over the city. so it's stormy for some of you. it's to the south and east of those areas because that's where the low pressure area is
6:22 pm
consolidated around the low to our south. it hasn't been widespread but where it has happened, it was interesting weather today. santa rosa 77. without the rainfall. but san jose 59 for a high today with the rainfall. and the skies still look angry. this low pressure area has cold air aloft wants to sink the warm air heating of the day even to 60 degrees rising and getting turbulence and rainfall. low pressure where is it going? this is going to make more rain tomorrow. problem is it's heading toward vegas. and as low pressure begins to peel away, so does our rain chance but here's the deal. the counterclockwise flow around it i'll be watching thunderstorms bubbling over the sierra, some of that moisture may make it back to the bay area tomorrow afternoon. no, no hot weather anytime soon.
